Talk:List of abbreviations

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

why do we have ADA and all those. I dont think they are necesary. this is smashboards wiki. I know that smash doesnt belong to smashboards, but thats where this was created, and thats who was supposed to do it. I think having 2 sets of terms for the same moves is confusing.--ender 19:27, August 5, 2006 (GMT)

to my knowledge, ada and such originated at gfaqs and is still used somewhat by stadium players (who are firmly nestled at gfaqs, unlike competitive players). i personally think it's deprecated usage, in that people should try to phase it out, but should we be documenting or dictating usage? --MaskedMarth 08:33, October 8, 2006 (GMT)

There should be a list of B abbreviations, does anyone know any?--Respawn 01:58, November 7, 2006 (GMT)

Wall of Pain[edit]

Can't that be abbreviated WP to avoid similarity to the racist slur?- Gargomon251 06:24, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

That's a racial slur? I've never heard of it before. FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 07:26, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes, see Wikipedia. - Gargomon251 14:18, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
I just looked it up (wasn't found in Wikipedia), and from what I've read it's not a racial slur. According to the site "croatianhistory.net", it's a memorial in Zagreb for Croatians who were killed or disappeared during the Greater-Serbian aggression on Croatia which was between 1990-1995. I dont think this would offend anybody as long as the moves name didnt originate from the memorial, but I also dont thing that's a racial slur as well either. God I hope im doing this talk page discussion thing right. - PK_Starstormer 11:16, 18 April 2008
